My Garden is Delicious!

Well, it's been awhile - the end of the school year always takes all my energy...

My vegetable garden in finally paying off. In the spring I really wanted to try and build "square foot gardens" to grow my vegetables, but ran out of time and energy - so I used the plot that the previous home owners had set out as a vegetable garden. I am really enjoying eating fresh lettuce every night, although I think it is funny how I spend much more time washing it then I do store bought lettuce - I know exactly what is on my stuff - nothing but a bit of dirt, and somehow I think it is less clean than whatever I pick up at the supermarket - it doesn't really make any sense.

Anyways here's a peek at my delicious garden...

Looking good! Looks like you've got a really great growing space with all those nice raised rows.

What a difference a month makes.

Looks like a feast is growing there. Only a month back, I'd say those looked suspiciously like burial mounds all in a row.

How satisfying to see the growth in a month, and even more satisfying to eat your own yummy lettuce.
Oh well, with all of that washing your lettuce will definitely be vegetarian. No amount of washing will remove all of the pesticides from commercial lettuce.

I love the before and after pics! And I also noticed the time frame. Grrr..what is the normal temp in your area? We got a nice start in spring then it decided to get cold again before finally allowing the summer heat up. Plants got a late start!
